                                                       Dear Carolinas PGA Professionals,

                                                       As I assume the role as president of the Carolinas PGA, I can’t help but look
                                                       back at my golf professional career and think how truly lucky I am to be a
                                                       member of the PGA of America. From time to time, each of us feel the Associ-
                                                       ation owes us something. In reality, now is the time for each of us to give more
                                                       back to the game.

                                                       At our annual meeting, I’m sure many of you may be confused and possibly
                                                       overwhelmed by the PGA’s GOLF 2.0 initiative. What is GOLF 2.0? Plain and
                                                       simple, GOLF 2.0 is a modern and technical label for growing the game. I’m
                                                       confident many of our members are currently offering opportunities for new
                                                       and former golfers to enjoy the game of golf. We should each ask ourselves …
                                                       can I do more to grow the game? The PGA of America has declared our as-
                                                       sociation is best suited to lead the growth of the game. Other golf associations
                                                       and industry leaders have agreed our PGA professionals will lead the growth.
                                                       When we look at the goal of growing the number of players from the current
                                                       26.1 million to 40 million by 2020, the goal may seem unattainable. If you were
                                                       asked if you could introduce 60 new players of reintroduce 60 players to the
                        game annually, do you think you could do it? I bet many of you are saying yes, I could do fifty per year! For
                        our association to meet the goal of 40 million players by 2020, we need each of our 27,000+ PGA members to
                        bring fifty new into the game or returning lapsed golfers back. If each of us believes we can create 60 new play-
                        ers annually our Association meets the goal of 40 million players by 2020!

                        The time for action is now and the success of GOLF 2.0 relies on each of us to embrace growth of the game.
                        The Board and I challenge each of you to be the growth of the game leader at your club or course and in your
                        community. Meet with your club’s board or your facility’s owner to explain the importance of growing the
                        game at your club and why growth is so important to our industry. I feel if each of us take the initiative, we
                        will each become more valuable to our club or owner.

                        In early March, our Section staff will be moving into our new offices located at Greensboro’s Bryan Park.
                        Needless to say, our Section’s return to Greensboro is very exciting. Personally, I feel the Carolinas PGA has
                        been given the key to the city! There are a number of people we need to thank for rolling out the red carpet for
                        us in Greensboro, NC and making us feel so welcome:

                        Jim Melvin – President, Joseph Bryan Foundation        Bobby Long – Bryan Foundation Board
                        Bruce Cantrell – J. Hyatt Hammond               Mark Isaacson – NC Legal Counsel
                        Kim Worrel, PGA & David Lankford – Pinnacle Golf Group
                        Kyle Kolls PGA & Chris LeClerc – Bryan Park GC

                                                                  Continued on next page

                        We also need to recognize fellow CPGA professionals Rick Murphy, PGA, Billy Anderson, PGA and John Faid-
                        ley, PGA for leading our move to Greensboro.

                        Though the staff will be moving into the new building after March 5th, our grand opening and building dedi-
                        cation is scheduled for April 23, 2012. This is a huge day for our Section and I hope many of you will be able
                        to adjust your schedule to attend the opening ceremony. It would make a great impression to have dozens of
                        CPGA professionals in attendance.

                        Hats off to our Carolinas Section PGA staff for the outstanding job they did to prepare for our 2012 Merchan-
                        dise Show, Winter Seminar and Awards Dinner. With several new staff members on board, on annual “Big
                        Week” was well attended and everything went along seamlessly. I want to thank Ron Schmid, CPGA Executive
                        Director for all his efforts in organizing each facet of “Big Week” and doing an outstanding job as he always
                        does preparing for our Board Meeting and Annual Meeting. Special thanks to Jeanie Schmid for all her efforts
                        associated with the Merchandise Show. For our CPGA Staff, I would like to extend a thank you and congratu-
                        lations for a job well done to Cory, Mike, Sara Beth, Andrew, Kurt, Telma and Dahlia, your efforts and dedica-
                        tion are greatly appreciated.

                        Congratulations to our 2011 CPGA Award winners who were honored at our Awards Dinner and they truly
                        represent the very best of the best. Thank you to Mike Harmon and the Awards and Honors Committee on
                        their work selecting our award winners. A special congratulation to Bill Sampson, PGA for being selected
                        our Golf Professional of the Year. The induction of John Derr into the Carolinas PGA Hall of Fame was most
                        memorable and well deserved.

                        I am looking forward to serving the next two years with your newly elected Vice President, Chad Newton and
                        Secretary, John Marion. John Faidley, PGA will continue his role as our Tournament Chairman. We have an

                        outstanding group of Area and At-large Directors who are dedicated and motivated to lead our Section into
                        the future. Special thanks to outgoing Area I Director, Kurt Vogle, Area VII Director, Gil Feagin, NC At-large
                        Director Del Ratcliffe, and now Past President, Kelly Childs.

                        In closing, many of us are upbeat about our 2012 golf season. Of course, the mild winter weather has been a
                        welcome change compared to the past couple of years. This year will be very memorable for our Section as we
                        return to Greensboro, NC and host the 2012 PGA Championship at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island, SC.
                        Please reach out to your CPGA Board as we look forward to serving the members of the PGA’s greatest section.

                                                                                   Executive Director
                                                              Dear Carolinas PGA Professionals,

                                                              It is hard to believe another Big Week has come and gone. Every year our Caro-
                                                              linas PGA Big Week brings the Carolinas PGA Section members together to pre-
                                                              pare for the upcoming season. The preparations for this year’s Big Week were very
                                                              different than in the past. Not only does the Carolinas PGA Section office have
                                                              an almost entirely new staff, we also had to plan the event from over four hours
                                                              away. I would like to commend my staff for stepping up and rallying together to
                                                              put on an exceptional Big Week.

                                                              This year we were lucky to welcome Darrell Crall, Senior Director of Golf 2.0 for
                                                              The PGA of America to our Annual Meeting and Winter Education Seminars. He
                                                              along with PGA of America Secretary, Derek Sprague and District 10 Director,
                                                              Mike Ahrnsbrak, brought a wealth of knowledge on Golf 2.0 which they presented
                                                              to our members. I believe that all PGA Professionals in attendance returned to
                                                              their facilities with an understanding of Golf 2.0, and what it is going to take to be
                                                              successful with this new program.

                                                               I would like to congratulate and welcome our new president, Mike Casto, PGA.
                                                              He steps into his new role at an exciting time for the Section as we prepare to
                        move into our new home site. I have no doubt that he will continue on the excellent path that was laid out by Honorary
                        President Karl Kimball, PGA. I would also like to welcome Chad Newton, PGA as Vice President of the CPGA and John
                        Marino, PGA as Secretary. These three PGA Professionals have given selflessly of their time to the governance of our Sec-
                        tion, and I look forward to working with them as the CPGA begins a new chapter. I also want to welcome our new Area
                        I Director Jay King, PGA; Area IV Director Rocky Brooks,PGA, who will be fulfilling Chad Newton’s term; Area VII

                        Director Paige Cribb, PGA; and Area IX Director Bob Byrnes. I want to encourage PGA Professionals in their areas to
                        look to them for guidance and leadership in the coming years. They are a valuable addition to an already accomplished

                        Carolinas PGA Board of Directors.

                        After Big Week ended, the Carolinas PGA Staff headed back up to Greensboro to prepare for the big move into our new
                        headquarters. Over the next week, myself and the staff will be busy moving into our new home. Hopefully, by day’s end
                        on Friday, March 9th, we will be settled in our new headquarters. Phone lines are being installed, computers are being
                        configured, furniture is being moved, and building inspections are being finalized. At some point next week, likely for
                        one day, we will be without phones, internet or email. We will try to post this information on our website as available,
                        prior to the service interruption. We do hope that once we have made the move, you will come by and visit your new

                        I enjoyed attending the recent Carolinas PGA Annual Meeting and visiting with many CPGA Professionals. I
                        hope the meeting and other “Big Week” activities were informative and productive for you.

                        fessional at your facility, please make sure that all PGA members and apprentices on your staff complete the
                        survey as well. PGA members who complete the survey by March 16 will receive 2 MSR credits (maximum 5
                        survey credits per MSR cycle year).
